Cleaning out the clutter
I feel the same way going through my MS for the #th edit. My awesome cousin, Katrina Lantz (see her blog to the right!), has been helping me edit Open Eyes in preparation for querying, and I have to laugh at some of the things that are still there. Like the word slightly. I'm slightly surprised to see that I used slightly to qualify almost every verb in my MS. It's slightly annoying, actually.
My point is, even when we think we've gotten rid of everything, there's always more to cut. Though it can be hard sometimes, we have to go over our Word Documents over and over and over again, and have others go over them as well. After all, if we want everyone to be able to pull this off a shelf, shouldn't we want to make it the best it can be?
